Stuff You Tried To Love
@sokogear If you don’t like Miles you don’t like jazz, and that’s OK. Jazz comprises more than 50% of my listening and at times has comprised a much greater proportion since I first began exploring it in the mid 70’s. There are numerous Jazz ...

@mahgister  Sometimes it is not the opinion the problem... Sometimes it is the way the opinion is phrased as an ultimatum... So true!   Not such a big deal re: audio but when it comes to politics...  
Stuff You Tried To Love

Two of my favorite S. Fortune recordings:  1) "Alto Memories" co-led with Gary Bartz: 2) "From Now On":    
OCD mickey website and negativity.
I had some interactions with him when shopping for a DAC. He sent me a Metrum Pavanne and a COS (don’t recall the model). I didn’t end up buying either one but I’d have no reservations approaching him again. We got into some deep e mail discussion... 
recommend PRAT Integrated amplifiers (not Naim)
@audiocanada  ​​​​​​I'm mystified by your assertion about Hegel. My H390 has PRaT in spades. It's one of its most evident attributes.          
2024 Audio System Wish List
Upgrade digital coax and AC cables. Possibly a power conditioner.   
Anyone have experience with using de-esser for sibilance in home audio system?
